Old Bags win last charity quiz of 2023

The last quiz of the Year was magnificent!! 14 teams competed for the trophy, many with 10 or 11 members, making it 90 people altogether !! I wonder if the nibbles encouraged them?

Charity Quiz

The charity was for GADS , which has done such a lot of work, encouraging young people in Amateur Dramatics. The play last week was a prime example . Goodbye Mr Tom had full audiences with quite a few teenagers ‘treading the boards’. Thank you GADS for organising the excellent raffle and raised £210.00 for their funds.

The total we raised for 2023 was £4851.41.  A competition to guess the total was won by Loose Women who got a box of chocolates. Maybe 2024 will be the year to raise £5000?

The results

The last Quiz was won by The Old Bags with 93 points. (hurray for old bags generally). Second was The Old Rockers with 91 points and third was Carole & Co and Motley Crew with 90 points each. So close!

And thank you

Thank you to Richard and Helen for the refreshments and to the bar staff for womaning the bar.

And finally, thank you so much for the wonderful and unexpected present from all the Quiz members . Gordon was presented with a snazzy apron, John Hobbs (who had done the Music Round all year round) a present I didn’t quite see what it was, and Gordon and I received a magnificent voucher for a meal out which we will be using quite soon!

The next quiz starts on Tuesday 30th January 2024 and is in aid of The Brickyard Garden (Update: now Cancer Research). Please book your table in advance to avoid dissappointment!
